St Joseph's Surrey Hills - A glaring omission! No mention of the heritage overlay!

Surprising, as some residents have noted, that the Real Estate sale board and the PR brochure do not mention the 'Heritage Overlay' that applies to this site.


Yet the PR brochure touts an "incredible opportunity for Aged Care developers" to develop up to five storeys in height with up to 80% site coverage! Heaven forbid!


This is a significant and historic site within Surrey Hills and it is disappointing, to say the least, that the residential zoning of the site (NRZ-3) is mentioned but not the heritage overlay that applies under the Boroondara Planning Scheme. We will watch and continue to liaise with Council. Expressions of Interest close this Friday.
